  • I have been them all and at an 18 I was fat but I think all bodies are different and some people carry their weight good. My daughter wears a double 0 so when she was in a size 5 she looked a little chubby if I were a size 5 I would be depends on what kind of body the good lord gave you

  • Super subjective. Some people wear weight differently than others. Some people feel fat at a size 6, and others would kill to get down to a 6. I'm a 14, and I'm slimmer than I was a year ago, at a size 22! It's really hard to say that there's a set cutoff between "thin" and "fat". Then you factor in skinnyfat, because being skinny does not equal healthy or fit. I'm in better shape than many thinner women I know. I run, I lift weights, and I'm getting very defined, but I'll never be a size 0, no matter what I do (healthfully).

  • I think it depends on the height of the of the person, I'm 5ft 7in and in a pant size 9/10 and I might not be stick skinny but I'm not fat.

  • 14-16 is the average sized woman, so I don't think that is fat...

  • It depends on your body make up, bone structure, tone, fat percentage, etc. For sizes: 0-3 is considered x-small, 4-6 small, 7-11 average, 12-14 large, and anything above 15 x-large. But that's only a guide for labels. Like a previous poster said, someone who is normally a 0 but goes up to a 5 or 6 may look a bit plump.

  • it really depends on the person. a size 8 is good on a tall woman. Tyra Banks is a size 8. but a size 8 on a shorter person is chubby

  • I've known people who look bigger in a 10 and those who look tiny in a 10. It all depends on them and how they carry weight. I think I look big until I get to a 10, then I looked pretty normal and now that I'm an 8, I've had people tell me I don't need to lose more weight (I want to lose 20 more lbs to get to 130lbs and I'm 5'5)
